Lauren @ 8 and A Magical Vacation

Yay! It's Friday!! And that means we have a new challenge for you at Frosted Designs! This week we are challenging you to do a card, layout or project with NO PATTERNED PAPER!


 I have to be honest with you... this was a real challenge for me because I LOVE patterned paper! So to not be able to use any I was a little concerned I could pull it off! It forced me to look through my scrapbooking supplies to see what I could add to build texture and interest in new ways! And... it was so much fun!! I embossed, misted, distressed, layered... I did it all on this LO!!
Here is a cluster of flowers. I placed the 8 in there because I wanted to include Lauren's age.

 I used a felt border and crepe paper to add texutre.... LOVE them both!

 I thought it would be fun to include Lauren's name without making it the focal point of the LO! So, I placed it on the lace and embossed cardstock!

You need to stop by Frosted Designs to see all the creative ways the design team took on this challenge! You can get there by clicking HERE!

Paper Issues is asking for birds, bees and butterflies so I am entering this there too!

I also had a little free scrapping time this week and created this LO for the Scrappiest Sketch Challenge.


I have so many pictures to still get scrapped from our Disney Vacation. I don't want the entire album to be created with Mickey Ears so I am try to mix in a few other papers. Lauren was having so much fun and these pictures show her pesonality. I just wish the picture of the balloons would have turned out better... all the ballooons had lights in them that were lighting up different colors! It was so pretty!
Here is the sketch I used....


Also... Becky is celebrating her one year anniversary of her blog by offering up this yummy candy...
